Only 2 1/2 months into 2016 and we’re already seeing major moves toward ungendered fashion. Pantone has released a gender neutral palette and even chosen a pairing of pastel pink and blue—the traditional hues representing masculine and feminine—as the colors of the year. Urban Decay has made androgynous model Ruby Rose their new ambassador. Zara released its first gender fluid clothing line, and Landeros presented a genderless clothing line at New York Fashion week. What does the trend mean for hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Maybe it’s those pouty lips. Maybe it’s her confidence. Maybe it’s her perfect blend of softness and toughness. Whatever it is Ruby Rose, who plays Stella on Orange Is The New Black, is making edgy androgyny appeal to the masses. We’ve seen androgynous women with wide appeal before—Katherine Moennig who played Shane on The L Word comes to mind—but Ruby’s look is more aggressively standard-defying (shorter, barbed hair, lots of tattoos, little to no makeup on the show) and yet she doesn’t look “harsh” or in any way off-putting. In fact, she exudes a sexuality that feels both self-assured and approachable. Her beauty opens up possibilities for all of us; she reminds us that looking great doesn’t mean looking like everyone else. Learn more about Ruby’s inspiring style in the notes. –Laura Martin

Rampant rumors of an all-night-long (all night) romp with X Factor judge Demi Lovato put Australian spinner Ruby Rose into the spotlight. Now she’s here, we may as well enjoy a lick of her luscious lavender locks. Dip-dyes entered fashion’s and beauty’s consciousness a few years since, with Kelly Osbourne, Katy Perry, and the –– alleged –– lover of lady DJs, Demi Lovato, becoming its celebrity champions. Still, none of the aforementioned queens of color have managed such an outrageously wonderful combination as this lilac and lavender and blue. Probably not the style for a corporate office job, a temporary application to add spice to your weekend alter-ego is easier to achieve than what you may think.
